I developed an application which starts and stops other applications like NodeJS HTTP server applications or Java Tomee Servlets. A typical NodeJS application has a process tree of 4-5 levels. I had to switch really fast from std.process functionality like kill and wait to OS specific functionality because the child processes were not killed entirely leading to effects like blocked ports/files/directories. I have to use windows command taskkill.exe with parameter "Child tree kill".

What I miss is s.th. to get the child Pids of a parent Pid. Again I can use OS dependent functionality to retrieve the processIDs of the children, but how to convert these processIDs to Pids for usage with kill/wait functions?

Do I miss s.th. fundamental with std.process?

Kind regards
